Power analyser integrates oscilloscope characteristics
Keysight Technologies has introduced a power analyser that combines power measurement with a touch driven oscilloscope. The IntegraVision power analyser is said to make it easy for R&D engineers to access dynamic views of current, voltage and power so they can see, measure and prove the performance of their designs.
According to Keysight, while some current power analysers offer adequate measurement accuracy, they are cumbersome to use and lack the ability to characterise power consumption under dynamic conditions. Ken Christensen, Keysight product manager, said: "Engineers typically use two instruments to measure power: a power analyser, for accuracy; and an oscilloscope, which adds a dynamic capability. IntegraVision is aimed at those engineers who need to measure AC/DC power consumption and conversion efficiency while accessing common parameters such as frequency and phase."
IntegraVision allows common AC power parameters, such as frequency, phase and harmonics, to be measured with 0.05% basic accuracy and 16bit resolution. It can capture 5Msample/s and has a 2MHz bandwidth.
The user interface is based on technology from Keysight's InfiniiVision 6000 X-Series oscilloscope, including its 12.1in capacitive touchscreen.
The device is available in a two channel, single phase version, or in a four channel, three phase format. The two channel variant will ship in May 2015, whilst the other instruments ships towards the end of 2015.
